Why should it be 7.25"?

I really want to get a track saw, but I'm a sucker for cordless. That said, this is super tempting because in the end, a track saw is really about precision and this one seems to be the new tool to beat, so while being tethered is a little bit of a pain, it's probably worth it. Unfortunately, as the above users indicated, I was unable to add to cart. I'll revisit tomorrow and see if they fix that.

I would have asked back, why shouldn't it be 7 1/4 Wink

Economies of scale should have dictated the manufacturers to got the 7 1/4 route since most of the Circ saws & blades are 7 1/4. Instead they introduced 6 1/2. I'm sure there is a reason.. just trying to understand that reason, that's all

But track saw blades are built to a complete different build. Current 7.25" blades are nothing like them.

The depth of cut of a 6.5" is very adequate for the precise purpose of a track saw.

Bosch should have considered that 2-1/4" is a standard (albeit less common) door thickness. Bosch doesn't even publish the max depth of cut of the saw on their site. I was able to find that it's 2-1/4", but not sure if that's on the track or not, and either way may not cut all the way through a 2-1/4" door when the proper bevel is applied to the edge. It's unfortunate that nobody is putting out a saw that can actually compete with the TS75, since it's under-powered.

There.... I wish I could have asked my question this well

@thisismatt .. thank you and repped

@00dahc, 7 1/4 blades are easily available and currently cheaper as well.. why invent a 6 1/2 blade when you have something dimensional closer and is mass produced. People like me would have embraced this readily .. well not Bosch.. maybe a Wen like this one https://www.homedepot.com/p/WEN-1.../310735605

I haven't researched this at all, but I assume it's just a carried over European standard. 20mm or 30mm bore, 165mm or 210mm blade diameters. All the track saw blades I've used are much thicker/stiffer than your standard skilsaw blades, for glue-line quality cuts. I have a TS75 and buy the Oshlun for a fraction of the Festool blade cost. I think the Festool carbide is a little better, but for the money the Oshlun blades are a no-brainer. Well, that was until this whole fiasco and I don't much feel like buying Chinese anymore...
